12:07 AM
@Wipqozn is that the game where Nook is holding you in debt-hostage on a deserted island so that you will develop the place into a tourist trap for you?
 
@uni .... sorry about the diamond/lack thereof
 
Ah. Officially no longer a mod.
 
Ooo, a wild @RavenDreamer.
 
I still have italics somehow.
Does that mean 20k+?
 
Probably because mods are made ROs.
No, room owner.
 
12:09 AM
Hi, Yuuki!
It's been a minute. You enjoy Monster Huntering World as much as I did?
 
@Yuuki Not automatically IIRC
 
@PrivatePansy No, but @Raven used to be a mod.
So his RO status is a holdover from previously being a mod.
@RavenDreamer I really should get back into it with Iceborne coming up.
 
I like to think it's just because I'm that good.
 
I kinda stopped around the time Kulve Taroth dropped on PC.
 
At what? Doesn't matter. Not important.
Yeah, I Platinum'd the PS4 version, but barely beat Xeno on PC.
 
12:11 AM
Iceborne has my favorite monster. Barioth is just so much fun.
 
I'm beyond excited for Narga.
She was my first flagship monster.
 
@RavenDreamer I played that for a while too, on ps4
 
@Frank Barioth hasn't been confirmed yet, I believe.
 
I kind of lost track of what I was doing
 
IF he's not in it I'm going to riot.
 
12:12 AM
I want to play it more.
 
Like cuga is there, and there's an ice zone. HE'S PERFECT.
 
@Wipqozn Boo. Boo, I say!
 
Barioth was the first monster to really kick my ass for a while. My biggest wall.
 
I've only played Monster Hunter World
 
@GnomeSlice Honestly? Best one.
 
12:13 AM
I've considered picking up Gen Ultimate for switch too tbh.
 
It is a real treat to the senses
 
It wouldn't be until after ice borne mind you, but ultimate just has a lot of monsters in it.
 
Congrats, @Frank! You finally made it in!
 
The complicated gear system seemed daunting at first but I think I was getting the hang of it
 
I know ya been tryin' for a while.
 
12:14 AM
been a bit though
 
@GnomeSlice And they kinda simplified the armor skill system from previous MH games.
 
@RavenDreamer Yeah it's due to you being grandfathered into room ownership.
 
Armor used to have negative skill points in addition to positive skill points.
 
I tried Dauntless and it made me wish for the more complex system
 
Making mixed sets used to be an artform.
 
12:15 AM
@RavenDreamer Thanks! A lot of it this time was just straightening out if it was something I wanted to do.

Q: What are these reflective surfaces?

SeiyriaI've seen this in a few rooms now, but there are what I assume to be reflective surfaces in a these rooms. I've got quite a shard collection and I've tried each of them, but none of them seem to work here. What do you need to do to get past these areas?

 
World did simplify some things to be sure, and it does start off easier than past titles too. Overall, though, I think the positives outweigh the negatives.
 
I like the simplifications though.
 
I had a single mixed set. It was for Grongigas
 
I don't think easier is worse.
@RavenDreamer I had a really nice mixed set in MH4U that gave me Honed Blade and Rocksteady.
 
12:17 AM
In some ways, it's worse; it was kind of a sign of investment to see what people could do. In others, it's great, because it was a large barrier to entry.
 
Also, I picked up Tales of Vesperia on my switch, finally.
 
I can't remember if I managed to get Mind's Eye or Razor Sharp in addition to those two skills.
 
@Yuuki I think it started off easier is great, but I do think the curve could have been a bit better.
That said I still loved World, and I think it's the best monster hunter ever.
 
If it gets more people into Monster Hunter, I'm all for it to keep the franchise going.
 
Just whenever you make any major changes to a formula, you often lose some stuff in order to gain some other stuff. Just the nature of such a change.
 
12:18 AM
Needs more Brachydios.
 
Capcom can kick the difficulty into high gear later.
 
I solo'd Arch Tempered Kirin. That was enough for me.
Ha
 
@RavenDreamer I think I did that
 
I can't remember if I did AT Kirin.
 
I took a break shortly before the HR50 quest, and I can't remember if I beat that when I got back...
I think I did that
 
12:20 AM
But I ended up having to solo Tempered Kirin at least because other people kept carting.
 
IT'S A MYSTERY FOR THE AGES. Either way I have started playing a bit again. I want to get all caught up for Ice.
 
I play so defensively. Guess that's why I love Gunlance.
 
Oh temperered and arch are different, right. I don't think I did AT. I did do regular T.
 
aka. Funlance.
 
I had to kill 120 Kushala Daora before I got my mini crown.
That was the last difficult trophy for me.
I liked to fight him with Gunlance. Couldn't wing it on any other monster
but him? Gunlance all the way.
 
12:22 AM
Lance > Gunlance
FIGHT ME
 
I won't, because I concur.
But Princess Panolpy is like my favorite weapon design, ever.
 
HBG made pretty much every monster so easy.
I don't think I'm going to do ranged again.
 
@Wipqozn OKAY
 
@Yuuki HBG is fantastic.
 
Wyvern Fire's @Wipqozn across the room
 
12:31 AM
@Wipqozn I mean, it is but it's also super easy.
 
Someone tell me how these games are sorted
It's not by recently played, alphabetically, by size, by recently downloaded
 
@RedRiderX Is this the new Xbox game subscription service?
 
Yes PC Game Pass
Ah well, looks like it's just arbitrary order
 
@RedRiderX hash order, internal id order, something else useless like that I'm guessing
 
But idk how they decided on this order in the first place, because it's not in the order I installed them
@ToxicFrog By arbitrary order I mean I just realized I can order them manually
 
12:36 AM
Aah
 
That wasn't really obvious until I tried dragging them
 
@RedRiderX Slay the spire is awesome.
 
@Wipqozn Ooooh it's very good
 
I still need to play it
 
Highly recommend CrossCode, by the way
 
12:37 AM
I had a daily run yesterday that built a very silly Silent build
 
But it's not clear how I should prioritize it relative to Bloodstained, They Are Billions, and CrossCode
 
@Wipqozn Huuuuge time suck
 
@PrivatePansy Yes I think you bringing it up in the past made me try the demo
 
@ToxicFrog Isn't They Are Billions still in beta?
 
Like I've said here before, PC Game pass doesn't have a lot of AAA stuff, but it's mopped up quite a few indie games I've been meaning to try
 
12:38 AM
If it is you should wait for it to be released properly
 
@PrivatePansy 1.0 just dropped today, including a massive slew of bugfixes and performance improvements, several new survival levels with a shallower difficulty curve, and the complete story campaign
Same deal with Bloodstained, it was just released
 
@ToxicFrog Oh nice! I should try it again then. I was not terribly enamored with it the last time I played
 
Also in Slay the Spire do characters ever get more then 3 base Mana?
 
@RedRiderX Not unless you play with modifiers I think?
 
It feels very restrictive for such an otherwise loosey goosey card game
 
12:40 AM
It is, but the idea is to break that with artifacts and cards later on I guess
It does make the early game pretty slow tho
 
TBH it just makes me want to play Steamworld Quest even more
Is that still only on Switch?
 
@PrivatePansy I still haven't played it at all but a few friends have been raving about it and it looks like something I might enjoy
Also the campaign looks like a totally different beast from survival mode
 
@RedRiderX It's on Steam now.
Also, it's really good.
 
@ToxicFrog Maybe I was just playing it wrong, but the fact that death spirals are so easy and units so weak compared to static defenses means it's really easy to plan wrong and immediately get owned
 
I found Steamworld Quest to be well-made but kind of boring
 
12:44 AM
@PrivatePansy they did mention in the patch notes that the beta survival map was really harsh to new players and they're hoping that the new maps give a gentler introduction even if you don't try the campaign
So they are at least aware that it's a problem
 
@Sterno Oh? The story is pretty simple. The mechanics are done well, I think.
 
I think the main problem is it made me want to play Slay the Spire or something like that instead
 
I mean, the issues wasn't so much that it was harsh (though I did have to die a few times to get a feel for how the zombies behave and stuff like that), but that once a single zombie get in, it's pretty much game over
Again, maybe I just didn't layer my defenses enough
 
I'm kind of sad that StS isn't on android, because I've been really enjoying Night of the Full Moon on my phone but I am now very close to finishing it
 
Although I've had really stupid deaths too, like not noticing a tiny diagonal hole in my wall
 
12:46 AM
Just need to clear Hard 7 Apothecary and Hard 7 Witch
@PrivatePansy yeah, as noted I haven't played it so I can't really give you any meaningful feedback or advice there :/
 
@ToxicFrog Wow that's surprising to hear since it looked like they'd already planned out a very touch friendly ui
 
@Sterno I agree. IT was okay, but it didn't hold my interest. I found I didn't feel much need to switch my deck up drastically, and I'd rather just play Spire.
 
@RedRiderX it looks like it is, but nope, and AFAICT there are no plans to release it on mobile platforms.
 
I think they've been brought up here before but Arnold Rauers makes some interesting card based mobile games: play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Arnold+Rauers
 
Ooo, Card Thief looks neat
 
12:54 AM
They're all great experimental card based games but card thief is my fav
It weirdly had performance issues on my old phone though
I guess it was just too HD
Oh hey I wrote a glowing review on the play store like 2 years ago now:
> Beautiful strategy game that unfolds in a very approachable way with a very reasonable microtransaction model. Honestly this is just the complete package for me and one of the best mobile games I've played in a while. Only downside is that it's a bit of a battery hog.
Still checks out
 
What's the mtxn model?
Also every phone game I've ever played has been a massive battery hog, so...
 
It was a while ago but if I remember correctly you pay for more content basically
 
Aah
 
Harder level packs that sort of thing
 
12:59 AM
NotFM works similarly; free version has 1-2 classes (I forget which), pay like $1 each to unlock new character classes
 
AND IT STILL DIDN'T HAVE A HEADPHONE JACK
 
Today in stupid JavaScript shit - if you try to access an undefined variable called event in TypeScript, TypeScript won't warn you about it because event is actually a DOM global that exists in some browsers

Hi all
I had a question on Arqade but it seemed mostly opinion, so was advised to ask this here instead, here goes :
This question will require a bit of exposition/reading to make sence, so here's my background :

I'd been looking for a new RTS after completing Homeworld/Homeworld 2. I started to feel desperate that nothing would feel as good.

I foraged youtube, I found all the Red Alerts, a bunch of unrealateds like "Nexus: the Jupiter Incident", and EvE Online. All of which were pretty much instantly "not it" for me.

then I finally found the Supreme Commander ad on youtube (I think it had been out for a year already) and my first impression was "ugh so tired of ads not showing the real game!", I could

@tatsu I mainly played the game on FAF but also a bit on Steam. I also tried to advertise FAF on Steam but the response was harsh. I couldn't understand - like you - why anybody would not like to play the game on FAF but instead on Steam. Well, there are several reasons.
Firstly, FAF is pretty elitist. It's a lot of playing the game to it's maximum potential, discussing game balance in detail and generally a relative high level of competition - at least compared to Steam, where there is no ratings and everybody plays more or less just for fun. While on Steam, the players where mostly friend

Q: Arena shooters on Switch

SamI used to adore Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 and was wondering if there's anything similar for the Switch but with four-player split screen?

 
Ave
@RedRiderX this is now a meme
 
Just so I don't make any dumb mistakes: if someone with more than 20 rep posts a game rec question, I'm allowed to say it's off-topic AND invite them to chat?
Because thus far every time someone asks a Game Rec question, I've been telling them "this is out of scope on the main site, but you might have people in chat who could help"
 
11:50 AM
Yeah, that's fine. Chat isn't some kind of invite-only club, anyone who has enough rep can join
 
Yup, stuff that's off-topic on the site is fine here.
 
Sam
glad to hear it ^ :-) so I used to adore Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 and was wondering if there's anything similar for the Switch but with four-player split screen?
 
@Wrigglenite It's not so much about who I invite and more why I invite them. Concerns about interrupting active conversations etc
 
I just usually point them to /r/shouldibuythisgame since I find they're often better for that than whoever happens to be in chat.
 
Yeah that's the only problem with chat, that it's not as active as some users might like
And answers can get lost in conversations
But it's worth a try, I think
 
11:52 AM
@Nzall I mean, none of our conversations have any value anyways. Especially mine.
2
 
Sam
possibly you could create a self-answered question and copy/paste in the initial question and reply?
 
I think the only game I can find right now is nintendo.com/games/detail/screencheat-unplugged-switch
 
@Sam I don't think so. The closet thing might be sPlatoon 2? Not sure if it has split sceren though.
 
There's a lot of split screen and some FPS
 
Screencheat is very unique though, it's definitely not an arena shooter
 
11:55 AM
@Sam Not sure if there's any FPS games like that on the Switch to begin with, not to mention those that also have split-screen multiplayer.
 
Split screen multiplayer is nearly extinct.
 
Splatoon doesn't have splitscreen multiplayer
 
@InvaderSkoodge Which is a bit unfortunate, since we now have the biggest screens in our living rooms.
 
@InvaderSkoodge actually, it's still alive on the Switch
 
@Nzall None of those look to be FPS
(Or at least FPS in the style of Quake and UT)
 
Sam
11:58 AM
yeah I figured Splatoon and Screencheat would be suggested! and I think that is probably as good as it gets - just not a great platform for it
thanks anyway guys!
 
@MBraedley Yeah, none of them are FPS, but Split Screen in general is still alive on the Switch
 
@Sam ... Paladins?
Maybe not really.
It's close, but it's more of a character-based arena shooter.
Also not sure it has split-screen.
 
Is Paladins a good game now?
I played it when it was new or maybe in some prerelease thing and it was awful.
 
Well, it's also free so it's not like you lose money if you give it a try.
 
@InvaderSkoodge a lot of my friends played it religiously but I never tried it
Because I have overwatch
@Sam I mean DOOM but nothing else really comes to mind
 
12:10 PM
@GnomeSlice True, I already know what I'm doing in that game.
 
RICO's going to be a split-screen FPS, but it's two-player co-op, I think.
> Astral Chain Director Says It Actually Can Be Two-Player, But It Makes The Game Harder
Huh.
@Moacir That's Retrosaur's thing.
Trolls around and then changes their display name.
 
I see
 
Basically, if you come across anything that makes you tilt your head and go "wait, what?" and it's posted by a high-rep user (I think it's 40k now?), it's Retrosaur.
 
So Retrosaur came here yesterday to congratulate Wrigglenite

12:19 PM
Oh, Bloodstained isn't on Switch until next week.
If I pick it up, it'll be my first Metroidvania, I think.
Does Rogue Legacy count?
 
no
 
It plays similarly but I think of Metroidvanias as static maps, not procedurally generated.
 
yes
a key feature in a metroidvania is branching paths that can be opened with key items obtained elsewhere in the game too
 
@Yuuki first on switch or just in general?
 
@GnomeSlice In general, I think.
 
12:20 PM
I love a good metroidvania
 
I'm trying to remember a Metroidvania I've played before.
 
@Yuuki wtf
@Yuuki Valdis Story?
 
I might have played a friend's Metroid game once but that was for like ten minutes?
 
Abyss Odyssey
 
Nope.
 
12:21 PM
Well you are in for a treat
 
The second-by-second gameplay isn't unfamiliar as I've played games like Rogue Legacy and various other roguelike dungeon crawlers.
But I think it'll be the first proper Metroidvania.
 
Nice

@Yuuki Just play as Banjo-Kazooie in Smash Ultimate.
Best announcement of E3.
 
Man why couldn't they have added them like three games ago
 
Because Rare is jerks.
 
;_;
 
Which is super sad since Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo Kazooie were both phenomenal.
 
Honestly, of the Rare games, I want Viva Pinata on the Switch the most.
Actually, I just want a new Viva Pinata game.
Pretty sure I'm responsible for like 80-90% of all mentions of that game in this room.
 
12:34 PM
I've never heard of it before just now.
 
Apparently, I am not but everyone else (except for @GnomeSlice) who has mentioned it is no longer here.
@InvaderSkoodge It was an Xbox 360 release title.
 
That actually sounds pretty cool, from the wikipedia description.
 
It was basically an ecosystem management game.
You'd terraform and decorate your garden to attract certain pinata animals and try to make them residents.
Also, candy puns. Lots of candy puns.
Well, more like sweets puns.
Because I suppose an "eaglair" is not a candy.
 
12:49 PM
@Yuuki I've never played it either
Huh I never looked into viva pinata that does sound fun
@InvaderSkoodge both have to be some of my favourite games ever
Banjo tooie as well

The other half, the chicken is simply vaporized with no trace. Now, ma...

 
@Lazers2.0 50% of the time, it works every time.
 
That's the annoying thing :/
I worked so hard for the cloner and it's just gambling from what I can tell
 
Yep, actually gambling
I remember Tibia had a NPC in Venore where you could gamble any amount of money. If you win you get double otherwise you just lost your money
They then had to make a hard cap of 100 gold afaik because people with a lot of money could easily get more
However the increment you use is what you will actually profit if I am remembering right
So, 1 chicken - Loss. 2 chicken - Loss. 4 chicken - Loss. 8 chicken win: You paid 15 chickens to get 16
 
The thing is, you can also just breed chickens for a guaranteed profit
And you can only throw one chicken at a time into the cloner
Now, I don't think that should affect the result, but it is a difference nonetheless
I think it's easier to visualize it as a random walk along a line
You either get one more chicken, or one less chicken
One step to the right, or one step to the left

Is it consistent at least?
 
I haven't tested to see if it's truly 50%, but it seems to be
If that's what you're asking
 
I meant like Works>Doesnt>Works>Doesnt
 
Are you saying you're just gonna chicken out of the whole cloning thing
 
I think it should get better ratio the more it fails
 
@Wrigglenite btw congrats on moderator

Like, you lose 50 chickens to the cloner, now you get 75% chance. Then you lose 100, you get 90%
 
Oh, I don't think it uses a pseudo-RNG
@Quijibo Thank you!
 
I've got Oathbringer part 1 and 2, first book in the Atrocity Archives and Brief Cases (Dresden Files short story anthology) as the next things to read, just need to finish Elantris first
 
It seems to be a regular coin flip from what I can tell
 
@Wrigglenite can you get better cloners with better odds if you get more bug reporting levels?
 
Nope, just this one

Also, I'm not entirely sure if iI agree with a game linking rewards to successful bug reports. I mean, as long as it's early access, sure, but once it's a live game...
 
Oh, these are ingame bug reports
(Unless you're joking)
 
oooh, Bug reports as in insects in the game
?
 
Bug reports are actual items ingame, that you obtain from catching Glitch Slimes
 
ah, okay
 
It's all intended behaviour

City of Heroes had an in-game badge for reporting bugs, awarded at the whims of the developers.
 
It does tend to get confusing once games start to use meta terminology with previously established meanings to denominate gameplay mechanics
 
It....was not a good way to do it; people would insist they had earned it and demanded it, which just led to more drama.
 
Yeah, I didn't realize it could be confusing
 
I usually did bug reports when I was on Thais Sewers when playing Tibia... because there was a monster called "bug"
 
@Frank that's why most games don't really hand out meaningful rewards for participating in testing or using test clients
 
1:29 PM
@Nzall It wasn't even a meaningful reward; it was a badge. Badge Hunters just wanted it to complete their collection.
 
Hi
@CrayzyNath yeah the "just for fun" thing I understand. But it's undercut by the fact every single game you play with randoms there'll be at least one smurf seal clubber and at least one noob and never on the same team so the fun ends pretty much right off the bat.
@CrayzyNath Playing with steam friends only makes more sense but then there's all the bug fixes, shaders, maps, mod support, which in the end I guess is likely gonna be a question of having never heard it was even an option, or assuming it'll be too much work.
 
> Bug Report: I have found a bug. It is significantly larger than your average insect. This one is level 15, I am concerned it might eat my face off.
 
Anyone playing Bloodstained? It looks good but I hear it's buggy

I'm never going to get to vote to close on ID questions anymore hahaha

Q: Do all Ω form/Battlefield stages have the same hitbox?

StormblessedIn Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there are Battlefield and Ω form stages. Some of these look very different from each other at the bottom; compare Halberd and Flat Zone. While they look different, do these stages actually have different collision on the bottom?

lol at this procedural move in the canadian senate, apparently the Rules require the senate to suspend between 6pm and 8pm in most cases, but the speaker can ask for unanimous consent to not see the clock to ignore that
 
@Moacir Feel free to suggest that as a comment on it. It's closed, but that doesn't mean we can't help them until the roomba takes it.
 
What's the 20k delete immediately threshold, -3?
I think?
you were never a 20k you might not know lol
yep it is
 
@Unionhawk I think so. But I see no reason why the roomba can't just take care of it.
 
For questions, yes
 
@Frank the "editing a random screenshot on" factor but we can cross that bridge if we get there too
It's just unusual that I don't have a delete vote at the time of closure on an id question lol
